I had the pleasure today of being taken round The Glenlivet Distillery and Strathisla Distillery by Ian Logan, the International Brand Ambassador for Chivas Brothers. The trip was part of a fact finding mission for my articles in the Northern Scot (articles coming soon).
It was great to see such different sites on the same day, both making great products but in different ways.
The Glenlivet was a major operation and looked very modern, while Strathisla had a real traditional feel about the place. Both were really interesting and I am in real anticipation about the nosing and tasting samples I went away with (notes also coming soon).
Thanks for the time Ian, much appreciated!
